't like them. but now we see a huge push. >> eliot: yes. it's almost george sorerus and jim simon on one hand versus sheldoned a elson on the other. does it ever cross your mind that maybe it doesn't matter as much as we think it might in the sense that the arc of the obama campaign was not thrown off track by all of the money coming in from adelson and the others. >> you could say that. we're not infallible i think the candidate is ultimately the most important thing in politics, and i think there are some problems that mitt romney doesn't seem to be able to overcome, i think that helps. but there is 40 days left in the election, and there is a lot of money that has not been spent and is not on the airwaves. the real fall barrage is perhaps yet to come. >> eliot: you said you are so -- ahead of the curve on tracking where the money is coming from and where it is booing. one of the early indicators of senior republican dissatisfaction will be when the money begins to swift away from the -- presidential race towards the senate. is that something you are starting to se
